ELEVEN -­TIME world surfing champion Kelly Slater has joined a protest against a wharf that is to be built on the reef at Paunch Beach in the province of Bocas Del Toro, reports a digital magazine.

It reported that Red Frog Bungalows, a resort in Bocas del Toro, organized a protest on Thursday the International Day of the Oceans, “to generate awareness before developers begin to cause irreparable damage.”

Stab Magazine contacted Slater, a counselor for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, an environmental organization that advocates conservation of wildlife and marine ecosystems.

Slater commented that a developer “is trying to build a complex with a huge dock right at the main break point in Paunch and it does not make sense. The waves would destroy any dock within a few months and would be in the current wave line.”

“The surfers would be trapped on the pier after a wave,” Slater said.

Money talks.   Watch the wharf get built then blown apart on a big swell.  Then there will just be debris and everybody gets scr*wed.
